My wife and I have just returned from a four night stay at the Rex which we thoroughly enjoyed. This really is a family run establishment . Three generations are still actively involved in the hotel. The patriarch of the family, who I understand is well into his nineties, welcomes all the guests in the evening in the reception area. It really is quite charming. The reception is run during the day by Valentina to whom I must give a special mention. She was delightful and more than willing to help with travel arrangements etc or indeed any problem you had. Her English was excellent. The Hotel itself is almost perfectly situated within a stone's throw of the railway station and just outside the city walls. There is a bus stop within 30 yards of the front door.( By the way we travelled by public transport throughout our stay and found it cheap and reliable). The décor in the hotel is somewhat dated but has its charm and the facilities are all there including Wi-Fi in all the rooms. The breakfasts are adequate without being overly generous. The only criticism which could be made is about the hardness of the beds. They are firm but thankfully did not cause any sleepless nights All in all this hotel could be safely recommended and is excellent value for money
